Black and white photograph of a Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd 'Functional Photography' exhibition display stand or trade show booth at the Chemical Industries Exposition held in Sydney in September 1938. This is a distant, front view of the stand showing the hallway, seating and carpeting in front of the booth. There is a glass cabinet at one end of the display full of photographic chemicals, as well as a projection screen set into the wall, and photographs arranged around the walls and the entranceway pillar.

This photograph is part of the Kodak collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.

Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
